Fires in Apartments / Hotels Lawsuit Claims Lawyer

Few circumstances are more frightening or devastating than a building fire. When it is where you live either temporarily or permanently, you can face serious injuries and significant property damage. Fires in apartment buildings or hotels can displace your family, or worse, take a family member’s life. If the fire was caused by negligence, you may be eligible to seek compensation for injuries, damages and losses caused by the fire.

Whether in Tampa, Ocala, Lakeland, Key West or Orlando, landlords at apartment buildings have a duty to provide a safe environment in return for tenants paying rent. This includes minimizing fire risks and having safety measures in place in case of a fire. Adequate access to fire extinguishers, open stairwells, safe electrical wiring and maintained appliances are all expected. Working sprinklers and smoke detectors can help minimize the spread of a fire, reducing risks. When an apartment building owner is negligent in preventing or stopping the spread of fires, they may be liable for injuries, death, property loss and damages caused by a fire in their building.

Hotel Fire Injuries

While most people staying in a hotel will not lose much property in a fire, they are at risk for injury. Any building fire can put those inside at risk. Burns, falls, crushing injuries, smoke inhalation and death are all risks during a hotel fire. If the hotel owner and management were negligent, contributing to the start or spread of the fire, they may be liable for injuries to their guests. A premises liability claim may be made by those injured in a hotel fire to cover medical costs, lost income, pain, suffering and other damages caused by the fire.

If you lost a loved one in a hotel or apartment fire or you were injured or lost property, contact our team at Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law. If negligence on the part of the apartment building or hotel owner contributed to the fire or damage, you may be eligible to seek compensation.
